Call for Papers

The IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) is the flagship conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS) on informatics and computing in healthcare and life sciences. The theme of BHI 2021 is “Reshaping healthcare through advanced AI-enabled health informatics for a better quality of life”.

IEEE-EMBS BHI 2021 will be co-organized with IEEE-EMBS BSN 2021 (2021 IEEE Body Sensor Network) virtually, from 27-30 July, 2021. It will provide a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of devices and sensors, hardware and software systems, predictive models, databases, and big data analytics and machine learning that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, monitoring, storage, retrieval, analysis, visualization and interpretation of vast volumes of multi-modal biomedical data, as well as related social, behavior, environmental, and geographical data. It will also demonstrate the deployment of BHI informatics solutions that integrate key technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), mHealth, e-Health, human computer interface, telemedicine, bioinformatics, sensors, imaging, and public health monitoring, to achieve patient-centric and outcome-driven effective health care. BHI 2021 has the following 10 tracks: Bioinformatics; Imaging Informatics; Biomedical Signal Processing Informatics; Sensor Informatics; Behavioral Informatics; Big Data Analytics, Machine Learning and Deep Learning; Clinical Informatics; Public Health Informatics; Precision Medicine Informatics; Disease Oriented Informatics.

BHI 2021 will provide dedicated networking social events and special topics workshops to encourage BHI 2021 participants to exchange knowledge and insights, and to cultivate collaborations.
